Top seeds Bhupathi and Mirnyi, who had been ousted by Paes and Rikl in the quarter-finals of the French Open last month, won 6-7 (6/8) 6-4 7-6 (9/7) 6-3 in a keenly contested match. Bhupathi and Mirnyi will now play fourth seeded Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden and Todd Woodbridge of Australia for the title.
